How An Individual Maid Gets Away With A Crime
It's really simple. An individual maid gets away with theft because you let her get away with it. No, I'm not referring to actual theft from your home. I'm referring to theft from our government.
Here's how Two Maids & A Mop is collecting money from you and giving it to our government:
Payroll Taxes - Each dollar that TwoMaids pays in wages is taxed. Two Maids & A Mop pays a percentage of that tax and the employee pays of percentage of that tax. This tax funds things such as medicare and education.
Social Security - Each dollar that TwoMaids pays in wages is sent to the Social Security Fund. Two Maids & A Mop pays a percentage of that tax and the employee pays of percentage of that tax. This tax funds your retirement.
Sales Taxes - Revenue generated from commercial cleaning (offices) is taxed by at least 6%. This tax funds local projects such as road construction and fire departments.
Federal Income Taxes - Any and all profits generated by Two Maids & A Mop is taxed accordingly. This tax funds anything and everything - from military expenses to government bailouts.
Here's how an individual maid is collecting money from you and giving it to our government:
Payroll Taxes - Zero.
Social Security - Zero.
Sales Taxes - Zero
Federal Income Taxes - Zero.
Obviously, it's not fair. But that's not the point. The point is that our government relies on its people for survival. Roads aren't built for free. And your social security check has to be funded by someone.
This much is true. If you are hiring an individual maid, then you are committing a crime. So is your individual maid. You probably don't care - especially if that means incredible savings.
You voted yesterday because that's your civil service. It doesn't end at the booth. Either hire a professional cleaning company or demand that your individual maid stop involving you in a crime.
Just because your theft is anonymous doesn't mean that you aren't taking money out of someone else's pocket.
